Leslie Joanne Wayne, the mother of record producer Metro Boomin, was found dead outside of the Atlanta area on Friday night, TMZ reports. According to sources speaking to TMZ, Leslie’s husband, who is not Metro’s biological father, is suspected of killing his spouse then taking his own life.

The grieving family, who is asking for privacy according to their reps, is now waiting for an autopsy to confirm the official cause of death.

Leslie, who raised Metro and his three siblings in St. Louis, noticed her son’s musical talents at an early age and encouraged him to pursue his dreams. The devoted mother would drive her son from St. Louis to Atlanta so he could work with other artists.

Metro has been using his social media platform to express his love for his mother.

In a 2016 interview with THE FADER, Metro said his mother is his biggest inspiration.

“My name is Leland Tyler Wayne,” he told The FADER. “My mom wanted to give me a name where, no matter what I wanted to do, I’d be able to do it. An astronaut. President. Whatever. Leland Wayne.”

Metro has produced hits for artists such as Future, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Migos, Travis Scott, Drake, Kanye West and 21 Savage.
